Two QEW lanes in the heart of Mississauga will be closed on four consecutive nights next week as crews continue work on rehabilitation of the highway bridge over the Credit River.

Officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major undertaking say two eastbound lanes from Erin Mills Pkwy. to Hurontario St. will be closed overnights from Monday to Thursday (Jan. 9-12).

The first lane will be closed nightly from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following mornings while the second lane will shut down to traffic from midnight to 5 a.m.

The closures will allow for “winter staging activities” as work on the massive project continues, officials say.

Project leaders also note that the work depends on the weather and can be rescheduled at any time.

Temporary nighttime/overnight closures have been commonplace the past several months both on the QEW and on Mississauga Rd. where it connects with the busy highway due to the massive project that began well over a year ago.

All work is being completed in order to facilitate winter staging activities, project officials say, adding more traffic disruptions are anticipated as work proceeds in the coming weeks and months.

Night and weekend work along the 2.6-km stretch of the QEW from Hurontario St. to Mississauga Rd. is expected to impact traffic for the duration of the project.
